THE NEW RENAULT TWINGO AND STYLE ICON GRACE KELLY
FASHION June 18 2014
Combine the launch of the new Renault Twingo with a fabulous Grace Kelly exhibition at a breathtaking Royal location… and you get something very impressive. It’s been two days ago and I’m still ‘wowed’ by it!
Did you know that Renault has a close relationship with Film and Fashion? The brand has been an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival for over 30 years. That’s more then a quarter of a century of Glamour, Celebrities and Fashion. The greatest filmstars were escorted to the red carpet in Renault vehicles, such as the legendary style icon Grace Kelly.
Currently Renault is head sponsor of the Grace Kelly exhibition in Royal estate ‘Paleis Het Loo’. The perfect location for this event and perfect in line with the style of WhatIWouldBuy ;). The new Twingo was presented in four colors; white, yellow, red and baby blue. The designers of this new Twingo really did an excellent job. The car has a convenient size (city proof), is bigger on the inside then it used to be (the engine is placed in the back), and it’s appearance is up to date and fashionable (you can customize its interior in more then 100 ways).
The whole day we had the entire estate to ourselves and got an exclusive tour through the Grace Kelly exhibition. I could see the iconic Kelly Bag and her personal dresses from up close, not to mention the Renault Floride she drove in (with her personal monogram on the side). Oh my god, I would do anything to own such a car!
Even though owning a Renault Floride is a distant dream, a new Renault Twingo is more within reach.
And I can’t wait to drive in it!
P.S. Also check out the Fashion shoot that I did with Renault! Shot by Dutch Fashion photographer Lutske Veenstra. A super cool result don’t you think?
